New direct flight to connect Israel to Kerala

Kochi: As part of efforts to promote tourists from Israel to Kerala , a new flight will be started in a few months from Tel Aviv to the state.
``A new direct flight will be launched this September from Tel Aviv to Kochi by Arkia Israeli Airlines, which will be a major boost to tourism in India in general and Kerala in particular,” said Kerala tourism minister Kadakampally Surendran. There is a direct flight from Tel Aviv, the second most populous city in Israel, to Delhi and Mumbai.
For the first time in its history, Kerala tourism department participated in the International Mediterranean Tourism Market (IMTM) in Tel Aviv, foraying into the largely untapped Israeli market in a bid to substantially increase footfalls from the Middle East country.
Tourism director P Bala Kiran led the state delegation at the two-day IMTM 2019, the largest annual professional tourism fair of its kind in the eastern Mediterranean, which concluded yesterday.
On the occasion, Kerala Tourism launched a coffee table book which featured the odyssey of the jews who decided to make Kerala their home before several of the diasporic community going back to Israel, their fatherland.
